Great things about being blind. The thoughtful gift.

During this past fall, I performed my one woman show in three places.  A poster was made for this.  A poster that everyone seems to have loved.  Yesterday, I exchanged gifts with my mom.  She gave me one of the best and most thoughtful gifts ever.  She took my poster and had it framed.  I can now hang it on my wall and keep it forever.  What a great gift.  Great memories.  I know I can't see it but I am proud of it and proud to have it preserved.  I'm grateful to my mom for thinking of such a thoughtful gift.  Also, I'm grateful that she didn't think, "She's blind.  She won't care about having something like this."  Along similar lines, all of my guide dogs' puppy raisers have given me puppy albums of their pups.  I know I can't see them.  Part of me wishes I could have touched and held and spent time with my future guides as pups but I am so very very glad I have the pictures to show others and to keep for myself.  Thank you all!
